Creating a new folder

  1. Once you have decided in which folder you want to create the new folder, right-click that folder (i.e., if you want to create a subfolder in the Inbox, right-click the Inbox)
  2. From the menu that appears, choose Create New Folder.
  3. Type a name for the folder in the box, and then press Enter.

Renaming a folder

  1. Right-click the folder you want to rename and, from the menu that appears, choose Rename.
  2. Type the new name of the folder in the box, and then press Enter.

Moving a folder

  1. Right-click the folder you want to move and, from the menu that appears, choose Move Folder.
  2. In the Move or copy folder window, click where you want to move the folder (i.e., if you want the folder to be a subfolder of the Inbox, click the Inbox).
  3. Click Move.

Deleting a folder

  1. As OWA will not prompt you to confirm the deletion once you click Delete, you should first make sure that all the messages in the folder are ready for deletion.
